Chances and Trunk Show proudly present: Anne Elizabeth Moore for Trunk Show, opening and on view in front of Gallery 400 for the closing of the Platforms retrospective. Unexpect the expected: conceptually-engaged snacks, top tunes and an excellent new sticker that reminds us where we are and the work to be done.
Anne Elizabeth Moore was born in Winner, South Dakota. She is an award-winning journalist and best-selling comics anthologist. Currently based in Chicago, she lives with two cats and teaches at The School of the Art Institute. Her next book, Threadbare: Sex, Clothes, and Trafficking, is a comics journalism collection that comes out May 2016.
TRUNK SHOW is a mobile exhibition space usually located in Chicago. It features monthly solo shows for which artists are commissioned to design a limited edition bumper sticker. The sticker lives, rides along with and helps propel a medium beat-up 1999 forest green Ford Taurus owned by Raven Falquez Munsell and Jesse Malmed. In addition to the month-long exhibitions, the bumper stickers are sold à la carte and by annual subscription. Openings follow a nomadic, symbiotic logic and include a public affixing, conceptual catering and playlists.
